PNRI secures ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation for its OSL & TLD personnel monitoring services
The Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (DOST-PNRI) recently secured its ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation for its personnel monitoring services (PMS). The accreditation of DOST-PNRI’s personnel monitoring services helps ensure the safety of workers exposed to radiation sources in the country.
Said accreditation was awarded to DOST-PNRI’s Radiation Protection Services Section (RPSS) which provides passive dosimeters to occupationally exposed workers in the country in order to measure the accumulated radiation doses they receive.
Two services, the a) Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dosimeter Personnel Monitoring Service (OPMS) and b) Thermoluminescence Dosimeter Personnel Monitoring Service (TPMS) were successfully accredited following the external audit via remote assessment by Philippine Accreditation Bureau.
